Sanborn Maps show 3825 as a motion picture theater while 3828 lies in the middle of Avers Street. Most likely the person who set the type for the newspaper mistook a 5 for an 8.

In a May 18, 1916 ad in the Chicago Daily Tribune, the AVERS Theatre address was listed as 3828 W. 26th Street.

I think the actual address was 3825, which is now a laundromat. The Avers was part of the early Balaban & Katz/Amalgamated chain.
